"Do not remove a grain of raw material until you are able to replace it with a grain of spirit. Whatever its aesthetic will, a sculpture is always impressive. It catches the eye, forces respect or rejection, but one cannot pass by with an indifferent eye, as is possible with a bad painting. Is this due to the fact that it is a volume, a fullness in the emptiness of space, similar to the human being, or is it because for a long time it was an idol, an object of worship, a religious support? To carve one's philosopher's stone, a powerful symbol of life, what an extravagance and yet to succeed in creating a form is always a surprise, a wonder! Sculpture is like a huge construction site where the unrevealed waits to be revealed, just as our unconscious waits to be cleared to bring out the unspoken aspects of our personality. This sublime art is sometimes a revelator, a tool, a means to access a better understanding of oneself. The path of sculpture is neither linear nor in constant progression. The primary approach is to see, a sense that we have unfortunately developed so little in our Western education. It requires to challenge our sensitivity and our critical spirit.
